All day, from midnight to midnight on Veterans Day, 100% of the royalties earned by every author on the titles they display on the Veterans Day Challenge page will be donated to each writer's favorite Veterans charity.
Each author on the page is a Veteran of the Armed Forces of the United States or her allies and has pledged to donate their royalties to the charity of their choice. Many like myself already donate a portion of their royalties to their charities.
There's a short bio on each author's service, along with a link to their chosen charity and other links where you can buy their book. I urge everyone to take advantage and buy one or two books of your choice. Oh, go ahead and buy them all, even if you're not a reader. Your donation will be very much appreciated and rest assured, what you spend on these books will go a long way to helping our Veterans and their families.
If you're interested in making a separate donation to one or more of the charities, we have another page set up describing each charity and a place where you can make a pledge. Being Vets, we're 100% on the honor system. If you pledge, please follow through and donate.
If you'd like to chat with some of the authors, we set up a Google hangout where many of the authors will drop in from time to time throughout the day. You can access it through this Facebook page starting at 0900 EST.
Each of the above links will open in a separate page, so you won't lose your place. Please feel free to share this post on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, or just pop a smoke and send smoke signals.
Lastly, this whole thing was thrown together in just a matter of days and we'll be taking submissions all through Veterans Day. If you're a Vet and an author, please join us. Better late than never. Email the organizer, Richard Peters, for instructions on how to submit. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know a Vet who is an author, please forward this post to them.
